Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the BBK 85mm Throttle Body for 2011-2014 GT's and 2012-2013 Boss Mustangs. The BBK 85mm Throttle Body is going to be for the Mustang owners out there that already have some supporting mods and want to make sure that they're allowing as much air as possible to get to the motor. A throttle body isn't a mod that's going to add a ton of horsepower by itself; it usually works best when you've already started modding and need to make sure that the throttle body isn't acting as a bottleneck anymore. What you're really going to notice with a throttle body is more along the lines of throttle response, and not so much horsepower and torque gains. Most people tend to think that bigger is better when it comes to modding and that isn't always the case, especially when it comes to an item like a throttle body. Bigger does cost more, but the fact is that mildly modified or stock Mustangs do not have enough airflow to fully benefit from the larger throttle body, and if this is the case, then installing the biggest throttle body is only going to hurt performance and reduce throttle response. The current mods and the goals that you have planned for your car are going to determine which throttle body you will need, so you can utilize a bigger throttle body for more airflow and improve throttle response. The GT and Boss came from the factory with an 80mm throttle body, so bumping up to this 85 is opening up some airflow without a doubt. Just compare the 85 to your stock throttle body and you'll notice a difference. But if you've got a car with some big mods or a forced-induction car, BBK does have a 90mm option. Just keep in mind that bigger isn't always better, and that you want to make sure that you actually need the 90mm so you won't be hurting performance. You also have to keep in mind that there is a pretty big price difference between the two options. So, just like your basic bolt-on modification, neither of these throttle bodies require a tune to run or work on the car, but I will say that a tune will definitely help to get the most results out of the throttle body. The throttle body's going to be a lot like a cold-air intake in the sense that it helps the car for sure, but you're not really going to notice any more horsepower as you're driving along. What you will notice, however, is going to be improved throttle response. Looking at these guys a little bit more, this is a CNC-machined, 356-grade, aluminum body. Now, BBK promises an OEM quality and a perfect fit, and right now I can tell you that it does look like OEM quality, and we're going to install this here in a minute so we can talk about the fit then. The throttle body also has some other great quality and some beefed up components. I'm talking about things like OEM die-stamped throttle linkages and double-sealed bearings, and these are things you like to see on an aftermarket throttle body. I mentioned the 90mm option from BBK earlier, and this is the largest available option for the stock intake manifold at this time. Ford Racing does also offer a 90mm option as well, but it's a little bit more expensive and you do have to purchase an aftermarket adapter plate in order to run it, whereas both BBK options are a straight bolt-on. This means that they already include all the necessary drive-by wire electronics, so it's going to be ready to go right out of the box. I'm going to keep with what I said and still say that this is a basic bolt-on. It's going to be a one out of three wrenches on the scale and should take about an hour to complete. You will need a few different socket sizes, a ratchet, and a 5mm Allen wrench. BBK suggests you reuse the stock throttle body gasket so that's what we're going to do with our car here today, but you can always pick up a new gasket easily if you don't want to reuse yours. There are a few things that you'll have to get out of the way before you start the install, like removing the strut tire brace if you have one, and the engine cover, and also disconnect the negative battery cable while you're at it. You can leave the sound tube on the inlet tube and leave it connected, but disconnect the smaller breather tube from the air inlet tube. The air inlet tube will need to come off and be set aside so you can get to the throttle body. There are only four bolts for the throttle body, so back those out, and as you remove the throttle body, flip it to unplug the throttle position sensor on the bottom. If you're reusing the stock throttle body gasket, remove any oil or debris and then ready the new BBK Throttle Body by first clipping in the TPS under the bottom. Use the supplied bolts to bolt the new throttle body up, reinstall the air inlet tube, and connect the breather tube. Tighten down all of the clamps, reinstall the engine cover and strut tire brace and after that, all that's left is reconnecting the negative battery cable. Wrapping things up here, the BBK 85mm Throttle Body is made from a high-quality aluminum casting. It will allow for more air flow and it's a direct bolt-on install that doesn't require any tuning. All of the electronics are pre-installed and the throttle body is ready to bolt on from the box; you don't need to purchase anything extra to make it work. You can check this throttle body out, along with the 90mm throttle body, online and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Excellent Performance Gains.Replace your restrictive stock GT throttle body with a BBK Power Plus Series Throttle body that features a generous, free flowing 90mm bore design. It is a simple, direct bolt-on install that does not require any computer tuning to enjoy the newly discovered power you have put on your drive-by-wire 2011-2014 Coyote powered GT Mustang.

No Tune Required.The BBK 90mm Throttle Body provides some impressive performance gains without the need for a tune. A handheld tuner, like our popular SCT SF4 Custom Tuner, is highly recommended. This will allow your new throttle body to pump out even more performance, and you'll enjoy better results from other current or future bolt-on mods.

Quality Construction.This BBK Mustang throttle body is CNC machined from high quality 356 aluminum to ensure OEM quality and a perfect fit. Features like OEM die stamped throttle linkages, double sealed bearings, and o ringed throttle shafts make this throttle body one of best on the market today.

Bolt-on Installation. The BBK Throttle Body is a bolt-on installation and requires no custom modification or additional fabrication to your intake manifold. This throttle body also plugs directly in to your ECU without any additional wiring required.

Application.This BBK Power Plus Series 90mm Throttle Body is specifically designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 GT and BOSS Mustangs with the 4V 5.0L Coyote V8 engine.

I have a 2011gt with c&l cold air,bama tune, and boss intake. Would I get better performance from the 85 mm or 90 mm throttle body?

  • I have a 2012 GT with the same modifications (Just an Air Raid CAI). If it were me and I was going to make that investment, I would go with the 90mm if only because the stock throttle body is 80mm. It doesn't seem worth it to put $400+ for the 85mm. I also believe the 90mm will help down the road if you decided to do heads or valves. Plus at the end of the day, more air can't hurt.

  • This BBK throttle body and the Ford Performance 90mm throttle body are body very comparable as both are great for cars with forced induction. Since the openings are the same you will see very similar numbers in the performance gained.

  • Both will increase horsepower however with that setup, you will need as much air as possible. I would recommend using the 90mm throttle body over the 85mm.

Can this go with the JLT CAI and Bama X4 tuner? Will it make a difference in hp gain?

  • Yes this would pair up well with both of those modifications. It will certainly help open up the airflow to allow you to pull as much HP possible out of that CAI/tuner combo.

    Amazing airflow

    Since I have already installed a Steeda CAI and done an SCT tune on my Mustang GT 2014 (not a BOSS), I thought the BBK 90 mm throttle body could even handle better the increased air flow. AM spoke of an increase of 10-15 horse power. The installation has been fairly easy. The only problem occurred when I tried to slip the 80 mm connector tube from the Steeda inlet on the 90 mm throttle body intake. It has been a bit hard to stretch the tube so much to slip it on the intake but finally I managed. The first thing I heard when starting the engine, was the whistling sound of the air intake. The car has indeed more power and a better response; the acceleration on the highway is even frightening. In summary, I think it makes a lot of sense to change the stock throttle body if you have already installed a CAI or changed to a BOSS intake.

    Impressing air-flow

    Installation of the throttle body was not difficult. The only problem I encountered is that the connection between the Steeda CAI inlet tube and the plastic connector tube was extremely tight and it was almost not possible to connect this to the throttle body due to the difference in diameter to stock of 10 mm. Finally, I succeeded. What I noticed immediately was a whistling sound of the increased air flow. Since I have already a good power gain with the Steeda CAI and a SCT-tune, I did not notice big differences in power but I feel a better response when accelerating. AM spoke of a 10-15 HP-increase. Once again thanks to the great customer service of AM-muscles!

    An essential upgrade

    Had it on with help from my dad in around a half hour, the instructions were straight forward, but we had abit of a hard time getting the air tube onto the throttlebody. But, with patience and a flathead screwdriver, we managed to put it on. It was well worth it though, and we were wondering why ford didnt have this attached to begin with. Took her for a rip down the street and noticed a small increase in performance. In the end I am happy with my purchase and am looking forward to buying more products in the future!

    More Power, better Throttle Response.

    I paired this with a CAI and Bama tune. Throttle response is greatly improved. Install was simple, took about 20 minutes. Fit perfectly. Could have a nicer finish, but it's pretty much hidden anyway, so who cares? I don't really notice a difference at low RPMs, but I can definitely tell you that my car is making more power over 4000 RPMs. I'm also getting about 1.5 MPG better since the install, but I only have about 1300 miles on my car, so that might be because it's still breaking-in.

    Upgraded from a 80mm throttle body from the factory, to this 90mm BBK TB on my 2012 GT 5.0 with the BOSS 302 intake manifold. What a BIG difference in throttle response and power increase. If you have a BOSS 302 intake, you need this 90mm TB.

    2013 BOSS 302 BBK 90mm TB

    This was a very easy install which only took 15 minutes. That made the purchase even better as I noticed improved throttle response over the Track Key tune by Ford Racing. There is also smoother idle unless your running the red key, then the looped idle feels even better. AFR's are perfect and there is definitely more pull in the higher rpm range. I do not regret this purchase, rather I enjoy it more and more after each drive.

    Needs to supplied with bigger coupler or advertised as needing larger one

    Bolted right up to the stock intake manifold with no issues. I'm running an Airraid intake system on my 13' so it's piping is 4in in diameter, in comparison, so is the 90mm throttle body mouth. The coupler that comes with the Airraid/stock intake had to be cut about 1/4 inch in order to slip over the throttle body opening. I don't like ghetto fabrications, so I ordered a 4in-4in coupler from HPS and then threw it back together. The fitment is now PERFECT and without a bottleneck on this side of the intake system. I have not retuned for it just yet, but you can tell that your throttle response is improved along with your bottom-end torque even prior to a rescale. I am installing the Boss intake manifold this week to tie the package together for the best results out of such a big throttle body while I am N/A still. Side note: This thing whistles quite a bit while you are lightly on the throttle or going up a small incline hill. Nothing annoying or super loud, but it is to be expected and can be heard mostly by the driver alone.

    Highly Modified Mustang

    I was having issues with my mustang stalling at idle during red lights. My mustang idles now with no issues and the feel of the throttle is 5x better when comparing the stock TB. I have the Bama Street tune running (87octane) and it feels like the Race tune is calibrated in! Can't wait to actually load the Race tune and take the mustang to the track! Install was a breeze took a little under a hour only because the electrical connection wouldn't fit correctly. Had to use wire cutters to trim the piece back .25inch. You'll also need a new 4inch hose clamp if you have an aftermarket CAI.
